1. Question:

Albinism in blue jays is a recessive trait. Over time, the percentage of albino blue jays in a population will remain stable in a population from generation to generation if which conditions are met?

1. Random matings
2. No superposed generations
3. No mutations
4. No migration
5. Infinite population size
6. No natural selection

Explanation:

If frequencies stabilize in the population, generation after generation, then it means the population met Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. Populations in H-W equilibrium will get the same allelic frequencies generation after generation.

Hardy-Weinberg assumption for a population in equilibrium:

Random matings: Any individual get crossed with any other individual

No superposed generations: each individual can leave their gametes in the pool only once.

No mutations: No mutations originate in any new gametes.

No migration: No incorporation of gametes from other populations

Infinite population size: the probabilities of randomly taking an A gamete from the pool are p, and the probability of taking a B gamete is q.

No natural selection: Each individual has equal surviving and reproducing probabilities as any other, contributing proportionally to the gamete pool.
